The in-between day
They were shattered, broken
They were uncertain, fearful
They were cynical, questioning
They were grieving, numb
They were longing, yearning
They didn’t know what was next
It was the in-between day!
And here I am,
So far removed from that Saturday
And yet with so many in-between days in my life
Days of uncertainty, days of fear
Days of questioning, days of waiting
Days of pain, days of persevering
Days of silence, days of searching
Days where my brokenness is so, very real to me
Days where I wonder what is happening in our world
Days of heartache looking at places like Ukraine, or injustice close to home
Days of holding to faith, holding to dreams
Cling to the possibility of change
Holding, waiting, yearning, in-between times
And yes, tomorrow will come for them
It will come so unexpectedly
It will come with surprise
It will come and change everything, as they piece it all together
As they see the now and not yet
And yes, it has come from me
Time and time again.
Hope for every in-between moment
Hope in every dark day
Hope in every beyond me day
Hope in the bloodied lamb who kept his promise to be the Good Shepherd.
Hope as the Shepherd leads me through dark valleys
Through detours and disappointments
Through the now and not yet
Hope in the One who is alongside me in every in-between day
In every in-between moment
The one who bridges the gap and sends me out into this in-between world
As an agent of in-between hope!
Hope for today with Sunday coming!
